Edward Hopper and the blank canvas( Visual )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This documentary examines American realist painter Edward Hopper's life, including testimonies from people who knew him, and by those inspired by his work, like German filmmaker Wim Wenders. From Mad Men to Blade Runner and The Simpsons, Hopper's scenes of modern American life, most notably Nighthawks, have been recreated in myriad films and TV shows, while his style has influenced the likes of Alfred Hitchcock and Terrence Malick. Obsessed with the everyday, Hopper depicted all-night diners, cinemas, gas stations, hotel lobbies, and a theater, filling them with seemingly isolated and alienated figures because he believed loneliness was an inherent feature of city life. This documentary reveals the social and cultural context surrounding Hopper's work, while also exploring his independence as a painter, the many references to his work in film, and the widespread reproduction of his works

Si cette histoire est connue, le rôle qu'a joué la France dans la genèse des dictatures latino-américaines, et tout particulièrement en Argentine, l'est beaucoup moins. Fruit d'une enquête de deux ans, Escadrons de la Mort : l'Ecole Française révèle l'implication directe de militaires français dans l'histoire des guerres sales d'Amérique du Sud..."
